MILWAUKEE, "Wis.. Aug. 4. (Special.)
Now it is said that Governor LaFollette
will not accept the Senatorship, but -will
call a special session of the Legislature
lor the election of a United States
Assemblyman J. Ey Coffland, of New
Richmond, Democratic member from that
district, who was in Milwaukee today,
said that efforts had been made to sound
the members of the Legislature regarding
an extra session, and their feelings re
garding the Senatorrfilp, should Governor
LaFollette finally decide to remain in the
executive chair. Mr. Coffland 6a!d that
lrom what had been told him he believed
that these efforts were being made in the
interest of the candidacy of Isaac Ste
phenson,, of Marinette.
"No one has ocme to me," said Mr.
Coffland. "as I am not in their confidence,
but I have it on the best authority that
members have been approached and the
Senatorship discussed, and I now believe
that the . Governor intends to remain at

GRAFT IN BRITISH ARMY
Small Fry Threaten Exposure of' Big
LONDON, Aug. 4. Despite all that has
been said and done regarding, the war
stores scandal. It is hinted that there are
likely to be surprises in store, and that
the scandals may yet cause the downfall
ot the Conservative government. It la
said that the ramifications' of some of
the "grafting practices" may be as far
reaching and as wide extended as the so
called Equitable Life Assurance Society
scandal in the United States.
It is said that some of the persons im
plicated, though really of no Importance
in the world of politics or of business, be
ing "small fry." threaten that In the
event of not obtaining satisfaction, they
will impeach high government officials
for gross carelessness and for lack of
business precautions, which made them
mere tools in the hands of unscrupulous
business houses. Officials interested in
firms or Individuals are stated to have
given indirect orders to deal with certain
people, and it is alleged that civilians in
authority have accepted bribes. It is also
likely that the case of noncommisslo'ned
officers with large banking accounts will
be gone Into
It will further be- urged that the supply
branch of the Army "Service Corps is to
tally unfit for a great war, as it has been
reduced to a non-specialized branch,'
largely governed "by transport arid Infan
try officers who have no expert supply ex
perience. The very small number of effi
cient supply men were worked off their
legs in South Africa, and very often were
under officers totally Ignorant of supply
work who would not. or who could not,
refuse supplies which thetr juniors of
the supply branch had condemned.
In this way coarse food and rotten
stores were not only sent to the troops,
but were accepted by those who, if prop
erly qualified, would have rejected them.
It Is suggested that the supply branch
of the army should -have a thorough
knowledge of the world's markets, and
that capable agents should be appointed
who. in time of war, would be respon
sible for getting supplies from contractors
whose integrity was beyond doubt. Such
a scheme" would probably cost $500,000' a
year, but In war times it is believed it
would result in the saving of many mil
lions. Clarke Says He 3Ieant No Wrong.

MUNICIPAL COURT GRIST
JUDGE CAMERON" LTSTENS TO
Acquittal of B. Chauncy Arouses
Indignation of Police Officers,
Who Prefer New Charge.
"These policemen ought to be employed
in taking in bunco men instead of arrest
ing a respectable business man," said A.
Newlands, a witness for B. Chauncy. res
ident salesman for the Hardman Manu
facturing Company, of New York, who
was arrested Monday night charged with
Chauncy was defended by Judge Raid,
of the Justice Court, and presented an
array of evidence to Judge Cameron in
Police Court that overshadowed that of
police officers. Unkind things were said
against the police force by Chauncy and
Newlands. The latter claimed that if
Chauncy had possessed a gun It would
have taken the whole force to arrest him.
When Judge Cameron released Chauncy
the officers were Indignant, nnd Immedi
ately preferred charges of trespass and
disorderly conduct against him. Chauncy
will be tried Tuesday.
Frank O'Connor, arrested on a charge
of vagrancy, and later identified by Leroy
Berry and Harry Wilcox as the man who
had robbed their room in the Ross House
of $15 and a gold watch, was held to the
grand Jury by Judge Cameron under 500
bonds, in lieu of which he was sent to
the County Jail. Detectives Kerrigan and
Snow arrested Francis Mitchell at Third
and Daxis yesterday afternoon on sus
picion of being Implicated in the same
robbery. Mitchell, it is thought by the
detectives, is wanted in Tacoma for es
caping from the chain gang. His descrip
tion tallies with that sent by Chief Mo
loney, of Tacoma, and Mitchell wilf be
held pending an investigation of the rob
bers' and of the escape from the chain
S. Feeney admitted to Judge Cameron
that he frequently indulged in morphine
and cocaine as a stimulant, but begged
long and loudly to be permitted to leave
the city" and not be sent to jail. Prose
cutor Fitzgerald Informed Feeney that he
had no business and was nothing but a
vagrant and a bum, and ought to be
locked up. "But I will get out of town
at once,; honest, I will, if you just give
me another chance!" said Feeney.
Judge Cameron thought that as Feeney
had made the same promises many times
before, 30 days in the County Jail would
be better for him.
Edward Call, a frequent guest at the
City Jail, was unable to remember that
he had stolen a pair of shoes and a roll
of blankets Thursday night while under
the Influence of beer. He did not deny
a charge of larceny, but said that If he
had taken the things he did not remem
ber. Judre Cameron sentenced" him to
five days in jail.
James Howard, 19 years of age, after
remaining In jail for two days because
he would not tell where he had obtained
Intoxicants, confessed to Judge Cameron
yesterday that he had bought a can of
beer to drink with a companion. Howard
claimed that the beer had been purchased
by an adult for him, and consumed in
the street. He was released after an ad
monition from the judre.

that Russia is trying to force Japan to
show her hand, gain the advantage of
an armistice or secure a diplomatic ad
vantage which will deprive Japan of the
fruits of its victories.
It is now pointed out that Russia is in
various waye endeavoring to minimize tho
effect of Japanese, victories, so as to en

but upon an equal footing with Japan.
The near approach of the meeting of the
plenipotentiaries Is again centering popu

Public sentiment seems permeated with
a grim determination to secure conditions
regarded as commensurate with Japanese
successes and, assurance that peace will

EXPECTS EARLY AGREEMENT
Czar Prepared to Celebrate Peace
on His Son's Birthday.
CHICAGO, Aug. 4. (Special.) The Daily
News' correspondent at St. Petersburg
Mr. Wltte's declarations since hts arri

ened the belief in this city that the Czar
and the council at Peterhof Palace expect
the first meeting at Portsmouth to result
in an agreement as to peace principles
before the Czarowltz's birthday on .Au

ably will be devoted to details, such as
those relating to the indemnity.
Prince Troubetzkoi said today to the

government, everybody knows the hope

are now intrenched In the Amur district,
and Linlevitch is forced to Inactivity.
Oyama is willing "for Haseg&wa's army to
begin the offensive in the interior. So
the lull Is only temporary- Even though
Russian cities, such as Moscow, Nljnl
Novgorod and Saratoff, are occupied by
Cossacks, business Is at a standstill. The
treasury is depleted and famine Is ap
proaching. Hence everybody Is longing
"But the Czar wishes to retain his pres
tige, the bureaucracy its emoluments and
Linlevitch his Job. In this emergency
WJtfe's cleverness is relied upon. He has
received full power, and undoubtedly he
will .succeed in making his. concessions
unrecognizable. He will also endeavor to
obtain American political and financial
aid by. offering Russian Interior markets
and by urging an alliance of Russia,

led to the supposition that It was a. case
of suicide caused by the results of the
Congressman Rhlnock reached Cincin
nati today from a brief absence. He said
he waa shocked by the news. "It prob
ably was suicide," he said; "but I do not
believe the charge I filed against him
prompted the act. for Criswell knew there
was nothing to" fear in my case. Affairs
that the public have not been Informed
of. I think, prompted the deed. As a mat
ter of fact, I do not believe it is revealing
a secret now to say that since the pub
lication of his answer to the complaint,
Criswell had been summoned to the Dis
trict Attorney's office a dozen times on
cases entirely distinct from mine. I be
lieve Criswell saw himself helplessly en
meshed and decided to. end It all.
"I believe Criswell was sincerely sorry
for tho publication. He did not reveal to
me the author of tho article, but promised
to do so at the hearing In September, if
by that time the man did not come, for
ward himself and acknowledge the au
thorship. "He was not promised Immunity. I
told him I would do what I could for him
If he told me all, but that did not mean
much, as it was not my case but that of
tho District Attorney. I am only a wit
ness in whatever the case develops Into,
even now. Assistant District Attorney
Krotel did not promise him immunity
that I know of, but he told Criswell he
would be as easy as he could."

Anti-Amarican Chinese Under
REPORT NOW CREDITED
Astonishment at Wu Ting Fang's
Doublc-Faced Course Is Ex
pressed In Washington's
WASHINGTON, Aug.- 4.-(SpecIal.) Au
thentic Information has reached Washing
ton from official sources which makes Wu
Ting Fang, the former Chinese Minister,
the hub around which tho present anti
American agitation in China revolves. In
brief, the reports state that Wu Ting
Fang has plenary powers to conduct all
diplomatic negotiations on trade and ex
clusion treaties with the United States,
nnd that he Is the one man In China from
which the boycott and anti-American so
cieties In China take orders.
The seriousness of this situation arises
from the fact that Wu is occupying a
dual position, one of which at least is
official, and that, despite Its denials, the
Chinese government appears on the face
of the reports to be playing double In
the present trouble. In Washington the
attitude of Wu Ting Fang is regarded
with astonishment. While Minister here
he was one of the most popular members
of the diplomatic corps and his crafty
cunning was deeply appreciated. He wag
constantly on the alert to agitate the
"open door" for the Chinese in the United
States and before he left became almost
insistent on this point. In this respect
his attitude since returning home has
been consistent with hi? service here, but
that Wu harbored - any animosities
against the Americans which would lead
to his present reported course Is the sur
Officials who knew him here say that
Wu Ting Fang would know well to what
extent agitation of the character which
he Is now officially credited with spread
ing would go In China. Minister Conger,
of Mexico, ex-Minister to China,
has been granted a leave of absence for
two months and Is coming to Washing
ton. It Is stated on reliable authority
that he Is coming to save his official life

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4. It developed
today that a report recently received at

Service from Passed Assistant Surgeon
M. J. White, stationed at Hong Kong,
cnina, charges that a ring composed en
tlrely of Influential Chinese are "holding
up" their countrymen intending to emi
grate to the united States. Surgeon
White expressed the opinion that the
matter should be submitted to the Chi
nese government for Inquiry, and that as
slstanco should be given by- officers of
this Government in unearthing the lm
position which he believes is being prac
ticed on Chinese Immigrants.
Surgeon White's report was based on
charges that Marine Hospital surgeons
stationed at Chinese ports have conspired
to hold up Chinese persona entitled to ad
mission to the United States. He said he
bad made a thorough Investigation Into
the charges, and expressed the belief that
no surgeons in the Public Health and

Foremost In the agitation Is Cheu Fook.
Viceroy for Kuang Sho. whose four chil

SMALL HOPE FOR ISLANDS
Sugar and Tobacco Hobby Will
Shelve Tariff Reduction.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Aug. 1. There is little prospect
that the duty on Philippine sugar and
tobacco will h reduced at tha vmJrnr
session of Congress. The same influences !
that prevented a reduction of this duty I
In the last Congress will probably be able
to accomplish as much In the 69th Con- ,
gress, particularly as there will be a num- ,
ber of more Important matters to engross i
the time of both Senate and House.
One thing which Secretary Taft hoped .
to accomplish by his trlD to tho Philip-
pines was to convince several Senators i
ana representatives from the beet-sugar
and tobacco states that It would bo ad
visable to let down the tariff bars on these
The Secretary has maintained from the
first that the amount of sugar produced
in the islands would never be sufficient
to affect the price of American sugar; he
has stoutly asserted that the cost of
transportation from the Philippines to
this country would offset the difference In
price of production.
But. even should tho Secretary succeed
In changing the views of Senator Patter
son, of Colorado, and a few others In his
party, he will not b awe to change the
views of the men who stayed at home. As
a matter of fact, the men from the sugar
states are even now actively at work
building up an organization with the pur
pose of preventing the enactment of any
law reducing the tariff on Philippine
sugar. And they are meeting with con
siderable success. Such an organization,
properly managed, will bo able to defeat
any legislation that may be proposed.
The fact of the matter is. Congress, or
rather the Senate, is going to have very
little time next Winter to take up the
Philippine question. Between the railroad
rate bill, the Panama Canal bill, and a
possible general tariff till, there will be

termlncd minority In the Senate, by care- J
ful co-operation, will be able to defeat
any legislation of comparative minor Im
portance. Many Senators have, or profess to have.
a deep interest In the welfare of the Phil
ippine Islands, but, when it comes to a
choice between vital legislation affecting
the United States and legislation of rela
tive importance to the Islands, the latter ,
must be sidetracked. That is the fate In !
store for any Philippine tariff bill that ,
may be brought forward.

Converted on Sight, He Showed Con
tinued Religious Faithfulness.
New York Sun.
About a year ago Archbishop Ryan, of
Philadelphia, while strolling through Lo
gan Park, opposite the Episcopal resi
dence, "picked up" a very handsome col
lie. Perhaps It would be more accurate !
to say that the dog picked up the prelate, I
for It followed him home and In e,very
move and look begged so hard to be al
lowed to come Into the great brownstone
house that Mgr. Ryan's- big heart was
won. And ever since the strange but
beautiful wanderer has made his home
with the head of the Roman Catholic
Church in Pennsylvania.
Like most others of his breed. "Tom"
showed remarkable Intelligence. He
learned how lo pray, with his head sunk
low between his forepaws. He learned
to sing, accompanying himself with
thumpings upon the piano. He would
st silent and respectful as a religious
procession paosed In or out of the cathe
dral, and never once has he tried to enter
thfe portals of that sacred building. That
ho was a beloved pet of everyone In the
neighborhood, and of the archbishop most
of all, goep without saying.
Last week Mgr. Ryan nearly lost him,
only to possess him again, and more truly
than ever. He was taking his dally walk
with "Tom" when a man approached him,
claimed the dog, proved ownership, and
"But have I not seen in the papers,
father, that you have a birthday very
"Yes, I will be 74 on the 20th," was the
Whereupon the new-found owner sur
rendered "Tom" for good and all, and the
